Proving yet again that he is the “fightingest champion in WWE history,” reigning WWE titleholder Brock Lesnar has been defending his championship nightly in high school gymnasia and armories on the independent wrestling circuit.
Just last night, Lesnar narrowly retained his championship in a one-hour time-limit draw (or “Broadway,” in wrestling lingo) against Hardcore Hick, a marquee performer of the Pure Wrestling Association (PWA) in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada.
Contrary to the widespread belief among WWE fans that Lesnar is resting on his laurels, he recently embarked on a five-city tour for Idaho Extreme Wrestling (IEW), which saw him successfully defend his title in Boise, Meridian, Idaho Falls, Nampa, and Chubbuck.
Lesnar’s successes on the independent (or indy) wrestling circuit have been witnessed by literally dozens of fans, and have featured victories over prominent stars including RJ City, Warhed, Dirty Drake Dillon, and the legendary Tito Santana.
Lesnar actually suffered a loss at the hands (well, hand) of “Handicapped Hero” Gregory Iron at a Pro Wrestling Syndicate (PWS) event last week in Rahway, NJ, but the decision was reversed due to outside interference by Lesnar’s longtime rival Zach Gowen.
Lesnar’s next WWE appearance is tentatively scheduled for SummerSlam 2017.
